after the inauguration, you said as obviously someone on the -- leading the environment and public works committee that you know, wow. we might really get something done. what is your hope about that particular issue? >> well, here's the situation. it is so -- it tends to get overly complicated but let me make it as simple as i can. the problem and the reason we see climate change is too much carbon pollution in the air. you have to get the carbon down because when your carbon pollution is in the air, it forces the temperatures up. the temperatures go up. the oceans are going to be too high. there will be flooding. we know what the future holds. it is awful. truly, for the planet. so here's the good news. the good news is that about -- more than 75% of the sectors that cause the problem that is the industrial sector, the transportation sector and the electrical sector, okay. that is already covered under the clean air act. so with that one change in the law, if obama picks a good person over the e.p.a. and just carries out the clean air act we can really make enormous progress. >> stepha
